UK 2016 plate 85k miles. Serviced by dealer at stated service intervals. At around 45k miles - running rough, cut out without warning etc. Dealer could find no problem and returned car working but running slightly 'rough'. At 55k miles happened again. Main dealer said problems were due to timing having slipped. Was out of warranty by this time. Reluctantly agreed to contribute 50% toward cost. 85k miles big bang, lots of smoke. Recovered to main dealer (not mine) in Chesterfield. Say it is blown turbocharger, but has drawn oil though engine and contaminated filer, cat, exhaust - total bill £7110.00 Their stance is - you've guessed it ' Sorry Sir, it's out of warranty'. If youud purchased our extended warranty when you bought the car you'd have been covered.

Is this 'normal' wear and tear on one of these? We've run a fleet of all types of Landrover products since 1993 - we currently have 6 in fleet - this is first Disco Sport - and will be last ever Landrover product we buy unless they address this.

I’m really sorry to hear about this. Wow, over 7 grand for the fix?? I had to look at that number a couple of times to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me. Since you’ve been a loyal Land Rover owner, do you think they would work with you to offset the cost in some way?

Landrover Discovery Sport (2016) came to a dramatic standstill yesterday with no warning signs until this point. Smoke coming out of exhaust. Called AA and got them to take it to Landrover dealer. They called today to say it’s the Turbo and would be minimum £3.7k to replace, and they can’t tell if the engine is also wrecked as a result and if so could be maximum of £17k. Any advice? Interestingly looks like there may be some pending lawsuits on this model in the US - does feel like it’s design or manufacture failure. We bought it new in 2016 and I was kind of hoping it would last more than 5 years….

Sounds like you have a Diesel engine and no such beasts where ever sold in North America in 2016. A Ford designed petrol engine was used.

Years ago my SAAB had it's turbo fail (petrol/gas) and continued to run poorly. Brought it to a company that worked on truck turbos and had it rebuilt. I think I paid about 1/5 the cost of a new one and it included labour for installation .

Are you referring to the Ford designed and supplied gas/petrol engine?

Same headline and issue (ie failure after 5 years/53k miles) but it didn’t give details of the engine so maybe no link after all.
